Spectral sensing –
from lab to consumer

We bring disruptive spectral sensing technology to mobile and other consumer devices, enabling advanced user interfacing, big data analysis, image fusion, and new applications.

Spectral imaging

Spectricity’s technology is ideal for mobile devices such as smartphones or AR headsets. The miniaturized imaging solutions are fully compatible with the size, power consumption and cost requirements of mobile devices. These sensors can act as companion sensors, cooperating and fusing data with other sensors in the devices (such as other image sensors or 3D depth sensors) to provide augmented data. This enables more robust applications, enhancing the user experience. Thanks to the accurate measurement of colour using the spectrum of light, applicationsĀ  that would be impossible with standard RGB cameras become possible, from truer colors in color photography, to accurate detection of materials.

Our sensors are also ideal for other applications demanding high-volume, miniaturized spectral imaging solutions, such as the automotive, IoT or security camera markets.

Spectral sensing

Our miniaturised spectrometer technology makes applications in mass-market devices such as wearables and smartphones possible. Similarly, the technology is well-suited for large-scale miniaturized spectroscopy such as IoT devices or even ingestible spectrometers!

When integrated in a wearable, medically-accurate measurement of biomarkers of the skin is possible. Using spectroscopic modelling and analysis of the light interacting with skin, accurate SpO2 or H2O parameters can be estimated and much more. This can be used for actionable tracking and early detection of respiratory diseases such as Covid-19, COPD, RSV, and asthma, or for hydration measurement purposes. The spectroscopic analysis allows for much more robust skin biomarker modelling, for increased robustness to confounding factors such as skin tone, motion and skin type.

High spectral resolution in a completely miniaturized form makes other spectroscopic use cases possible too. Contact us for more information about how our sensors can help your application.
